How to pack your car for camping?

Me and my girlfriend are about to go camping for the first time, what’re some tips to help us pack the car?

Camping with my Dad all these years has prepared me to answer this question! Here are some tips on packing your car:
  • Don’t pack everything in right away- Have a strategic order and plan where you’ll place everything.
  • Use all the space you can- Don’t be afraid to use the back seat if you need to.
  • Heavy stuff at the bottom, lighter stuff at the top- Lighter stuff on the top is easier to move around and adjust, especially if you need to access something after packing the car.
  • Necessities should be closer to the top- Make sure things you’ll need sooner are closer to the outside. Anything you need last should be closer to the bottom.
  • Tubs and containers are your friend- Loose stuff is harder to pack and can be easily lost in a stuffed car.
  • Keep your food in a cooler or separate container- Even if it doesn’t need to be cold, it’s easier to organize. You also avoid anything getting squished.
Now that you’re extra-prepared to camp, another thing you can do to help yourself is to invest in a good roadside assistance program.
